Frequently asked questions

Can I bring my dog?


Yes! Your puppy is welcome at our event but we ask that please keep Cujo on a leash. Also we ask that you clean up after your dog.




Can I come without a van?


No. You must come in a van. If you have to drive your car then have someone from your van club pick you up outside the gate. You will have to pay the extra person fee.




What is parking like?


Parking/camping is wide open. Set up camp wherever you'd like. Camp by yourself or with your whole club. We don't care. Just find an open spot and set up shop.




Is the event open to the public?


No. You must drive a van to the event and pay the entry fee to attend. No public walk-ins.




Should I expect rain?


Always. Bring clothes for hot, dry, cold, wet, and anything in between. We've seen it all. Be prepared.




What ammenities will be on site?


There are flush toilets, hot showers, porta johns, food vendors, ice sales, and a headquarters to help you find anything else you might think you need.




Can I come early?


You can arrive as early as Monday July 6th. Early camping is $30 for Monday and Tuesday or $15 for Tuesday only. If you want to hit up a nearby campground instead that is always an option. There is a list of local campsites on the website.




Where do I get information on vending?


Please contact Nate Van Hofwegen - E:mail - natescustomsewing@hotmail.com




My club wants to host a raffle when & where do we sign up?


You can register raffles at headquarters Starting Wednesday the 8th. We will not be announcing raffles during the trophy presentation. This has been met with a great deal of disdain over the years and will be avoided at all costs. Winning tickets will be posted at headquarters by 2:00 pm on Saturday.




Are fires permitted at my campsite?


It's going to be a game-time decision based on the weather leading up to the event. If the county issues a dry warning - then no fires will be permitted. If there's rain leading up to the event, then contained pit fires will be OK. Keep an eye on the weather and if it's dry - you should probably pack less firewood and more food & beverages. If fires are permitted they have to be in a fire ring or fire pit.




Can I rip around on a scooter or go kart?


The short answer is NO. Van Go-Karts are OK, but motorized scooters and other non-van motorized vehicles are NOT permitted to be cruising around the fairgrounds. If you have a scooter/motorbike packed, that's OK for use OUTSIDE of the fairgrounds assuming it's street legal. The SLUT Bus is a 'public transportation' that travels a loop throughout the fairgrounds. You can hop on/off and get around pretty easily like this. And be entertained the whole time by all the sights & sounds everywhere around. You may bring a golf cart or you may rent a golf cart for use during the Nats. Info on rental carts will be posted soon. Bicycles/skateboards/non-motorized scooters are a great way to get around inside the fairgrounds.
